           Summary: ANT_HOME is set incorrectly or ant could not be located.

          Platform: PC

         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: benhjackson@mindspring.com


I have been able to load ANT successfully at work on my Windows2000 
workstation. I tried loading it on the Windows ME PC at home, and when I try to 
execute  "ant -version", I get the message "ANT_HOME is set incorrectly or ant 
could not be located. Please set ANT_HOME."    I used the following setup 
procedure:
Setting up Ant
1)	Create an empty folder called  c:\java
2)	Move the java std development edition to a directory within this folder
          drag  c:\j2sdk1.4.0_01 folder into   c:\java
	     rename this folder    jdk
3)   Make an empty folder in c:\java called  apps
4)  Use winzip to  extract   jakarta-ant-1.5.1-bin.zip into  c:\java\apps
          it will create a directory called jakarta-ant-1.5.1
          rename this folder ant 
6)	Define the following environment variables
a) Start | Programs | Accessories |  System Tools | System Information ˇú  
                ˇ°Microsoft Help and Supportˇ± window
      b) menu: Tools | System Configuration Utility
c) select tab:   Environment
d) select variable,  click "New" or  ˇ°Editˇ± button as appropriate
edit  PATH adding  ;C:\java\jdk\bin;C:\java\apps\ant\bin
edit  CLASSPATH adding  C:\java\jdk\classes;C:\java\apps\ant
      new JAVA_HOME C:\java\jdk
	new ANT_HOME   C:\java\apps\ant
7)   Determine if the ˇ°antˇ± application is working properly
ant ¨Cversion
    
            It should say  Apache Ant version 1.5.1compiled on Oct 2, 2002
I checked the environment variables very carefully, and they appeared to be set 
correctly. I can go to C:\java\apps\ant\bin  and see the executable "ant".
   I checked the AUTOEXEC.BAT and it looked okay. I looked for other versions 
of ANT. Found no others. I had unloaded xerces xml and dom parsers before into 
a separate directory.  Any suggestions?
